Horse Abuse is Launching Pad to Human Maltreatment
I ran across this article on the internet over the weekend and it caught my eye not because I am a pervert, deviant or attracted to violence but because it scared me to death on several different levels:
Alleged Horse Abuser Arrested For Rape
WILMER, Alabama – A Wilmer man is being held in Metro Jail without bond charged with rape, domestic violence and burglary.
Other charges are pending.
Mobile County Sheriff’s investigators say Eric Easley broke into his former girlfriend’s home in Wilmer Saturday night, where he beat and raped her.
The victim managed to escape and call authorities.
Sheriff’s deputies found Easley hiding under a table at his mother’s home in Wilmer.
Last November, Easley was arrested and charged with animal cruelty for allegedly sexually assaulting a miniature horse.
It’s such a small little blurb but behind the text lurks a very dark and dangerous beast and speaks to me on two salient points:
1.) Over a decade ago I sat next to Jerry Finch, president of Habitat for Horses while we attended a multi-day seminar put on by the Texas Animal Control Association and one of the haunting lessons that forever froze in my mind was the presentation that pointed out that abusing large animals is the last step serial killers take before moving on to humans. They start with insects and work their way up attempting to get bigger and greater thrills until cattle and horses come into the picture and when they don’t satisfy their thirst for an abusive high, they step up to abusing people. Horses are the jump point to humans…and I see it here.
2.) We have seen and documented equine abuse being rained down upon our unassuming wild horses and burros by the contractors hired by Obama’s BLM. You have seen the videos, from Sun J’s renegade helicopter pilot using his aircraft as a weapon, which will be proved to be illegal I might add, to the pictures of BLM wrangles kicking and dragging horses about by their ears and tails, etc., etc. Next stop…people.
No doubt that it takes an out of touch spirit and a heart born of hate to do what is being done to our national icons but what scares me more is how this violence is accepted as “the way we do business” by the BLM and to date no one has successfully won a challenge against their inhumane and abusive tactics. It’s terrifying.
So while the BLM contractors have not been caught having coitus (I used that word to confuse them) with any horses to this point, there is one thing for certain; they are raping the land, the law and the citizenry of the United States as they cruelly decimate and dismantle the once majestic herds of native wild horses on their rightful land.
Just thinking about it, makes me yearn for a shower.
